“To be a winner, all you have to give is all you have.” Today is a beautiful day. Another day that the Lord has given us to conquer.
Do not worry about what you did not achieve yesterday, for yesterday is but history and today is a present. Start afresh and give it all you have to achieve success.
Concentrate on what lies ahead forget yesterday’s disappoints and look forward to lies ahead. There is more ahead than what has not been done.
Today God has presented you with another opportunity to make things right and reset your life for a better future. Today is the first day for the rest of your life.
I know that things will not be easy but with God, on your side, you can do all things possible through Christ who gives your strength. I believe that God is the source of our strength.
What you need to do is to set your sight on the task ahead and allow God to be God. He knows what lies ahead of you and what is best for you. You must develop the tenacity to trust in him who is greater than you.
The fact that you cannot see him does not necessarily mean that he does not exist. He lives in you. The bible says that “you are the temple of the holy spirit.”
He is alive and has given you this day as an assurance of his existence. Therefore, today your commitment is to go out there and conquer the day.
It may not be easy but it should be done with pride and joy. If you fail today don’t give up try again tomorrow.
What you do now echoes in eternity. Am not only going out to create a better future for me and my family but to help change someone else’s life. To be relevant to someone.
Whatever I go out to do must be in line with the principle of “do unto others what you would like them do unto you” for that is what God has commanded us to do.
Joy in What You Do
There is goodness in everything. Even in the things that seem bad, God is always telling us something.
I believe that he allows certain things to happen so that we may learn from them. Our duty, therefore, as human beings is to look out for what he is trying to tell us.
Sometimes good opportunities are presented to us when we least expect them. They are disguised in our adversities.
Today ask that God opens your mind and your spirit so that you are alert to what he is trying to tell you. If only you can follow his lead life would be so much different and better.
Many of the time we cry when calamity befalls us. We cry questioning God why me. Yes I know it hurts when calamity falls on you. But if not you then who?
I think rather than question God, negatively, we must try to learn from what is happening to us. We must ask God to reveal to us what he is telling us to do rather than concentrate on the negatives.
After the storm the sea is calm. If we do not learn from our experiences it is impossible to handle what is coming ahead. If you focus your mind and concentrate on the task at hand you will achieve your goals.
Always Do the Right Thing
“To me, a winner is someone who recognizes their God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses those skills to accomplish his goals. Even when I lost, I learned what my weaknesses were and I went out the next day to turn those weaknesses into strengths” ~ Larry Bird.
In the quest of making it to success, always try to do the right thing. Cutting corners does not pay. Cutting corners only gives you temporary success. You just get short relief when you jump the gun.
Believe me soon rather than later you will spend more time correcting your lies at the expense of moving forward. You will be going backwards instead of improving on your achievements.
I like to advise my clients especially when it comes to paying taxes. You are better off filing your tax returns and making sure you pay your taxes on time.
Otherwise, you will spend more time correcting the situation and end up spending more money on penalties than what you would have paid if you had done the correct thing.
Besides, doing the right thing gives you peace of mind. You can walk the streets knowing very well that you have nothing to hide. It’s only greedy politicians who do not want to leave office when their time is up.
Those who are in business will agree with me that they do not want to mess around with the tax authorities. Many businesses have gone under due to finding themselves on the wrong side of the law.
I know that sometimes it may not look cool to do the right thing, but that’s just the correct thing to do. It may not be cool with your peers but it’s cool with God.
Your rewards may not necessarily be visible now but in due course, you will be rewarded.
Take Pride In What You Do
If you are not proud of what you do for a living, I suggest you quit and find something else that you enjoy doing. Your work must be a source of happiness and you must learn to be proud of it.
It does not matter what kind of job or work it is. If that is what you are called to do then do it with pride. We cannot all be Presidents at the same time. One has to lead the other at a particular time.
History has taught me that those who start with humbleness go on to be very successful in life.
It is not where you are right now that determines your future. It is what you do with your current situation that propels you to your destiny.
Success does not just come on a silver platter. If it did then we would all be successful. Realise that your current situation could be your get way for greatness. Do not despise the days of your humble beginnings.
Be Grateful For Life
You are alive today for a good reason. If God Almighty did not have use for you, you would not have been alive you would be dead.
The fact that you are alive you must be grateful for it. Some people have died especially in this error of the COVID 19 pandemic we have lost many lives.
Every day I wake up is a chance to pursue my dreams. The only way I know is to first be grateful for my life and my health and work hard towards achieving my goals.
Look, don’t take life for granted. Someone out there is looking out for you. Show some gratitude by also looking out for someone.
There are many reasons for showing gratitude. Even if you are going through the roughest of times it is important to show gratitude.
Make it a habit to show gratitude even for the smallest of things. It is just polite to say thank you when someone is serving you. Gratitude is a sign of appreciation.
Giving it all you have does not guarantee that you will succeed, however, it is the only chance you have.
